A dreamable space simulation. Noctis: the latin word for "night", and the title of this simulator. Night, after all, is just the word we use to describe the absence of light while the Earth is turned away from the sun, and in space, there is no light but the distant pinpricks of ancient stars. Space is a lonely place, but it harbours some truly spectacular secrets; eerily glowing pulsars, enormous red giants, glittering, beautiful nebulae, and deadly, all-consuming singularities to...

Developed by Joustra Software Released 1999 Platform DOS Genre Educational Description Valgetal challenges you to complete basic math equations by controlling the placement of falling numbers. If you create a vertical column of three blocks, the number on top must be the sum of the two below it. If it isn't, you are penalised by a reduction in the size of the container, which immediately makes it harder to control successive blocks precisely. There are 20 progressively difficult levels to begin...

It is very old, therefore don't expect special graphics quality: it renders in a strange kind of "fluorescent...

Starways approximates the attracting mass of a whole galaxy's core with a single central attractor, presumably a black hole plus the stars forming the core, then applies gravity from that point to all surrounding stars. Star masses are ignored, allowing for very fast REAL-TIME, interactive simulations. Also, star masses have proven almost uninfluent for the final result of such a simulation: normally, adding effective masses to the single stars only determines the formation of clusters. Such...
